events changed america. that's all for us tonight. anderson cooper reports now live from the philippines. >>> good evening, everyone. i'm anderson cooper reporting tonight from tacloban in the philippines. it is thursday morning here, 9:00 a.m. and a new day has begun. in the last several hours there have been some significant developments to tell you about. yesterday i talked to the marine brigadier general paul kennedy who promised he would be able to get this airport, the runway, up and running on a 24-hour basis. he's fulfilled that promise along with air force personnel who were here on the ground last night for the first time aircraft were coming in during the nighttime hours, able to land and offload supplies. we have actually seen an uptick in aid along the side of the runway from usaid, from the malaysian government, from other places. food aid, medical supplies, and tarps that people can use for shelter. the problem is getting it out from here at the airport to the surrounding communities that are in such desperate need. and it's not just a question of communities far away. i'm
to drink. >> we need more people to help. >> reporter: help is on the way. u.s. service members are on the ground and ships are on the way. but right now there isn't enough aid, and what aid there is isn't getting out to those who need it most. day after day thousands come to tacloban airport hoping for a ride out, praying they can escape the devastation, the lack of food, water, the decaying bodies lying on the street. but with 800,000 people displaced, many are without options. while others continue to search for loved ones lost in the storm surge. >> only ones missing is my eldest daughter. i hope she's alive. >> reporter: this woman cries for her mother who's still missing. >> i'm still here in tacloban, she says. i'm still alive. >> reporter: makeshift shelters for those alive have sprung up all over the area. people sleeping wherever they can, desperate to find a dry, safe spot. people around here just have no place else to go. a lot of them who may have evacuated are now back. and what used to be their homes is a makeshift shack somebody's constructed over there. they tri
to him a lot. very dear friend to me, i used to talk to him a lot at terminal three. i was injured while helping an elderly man trying to get to a safe area. i turned around and there was a gunman that shot me twice. i was shot in the foot. after i was shot i got to the area where the planes were at. and people were coming towards me and asking were you shot and what is going on. and i was like -- i couldn't -- all i could think about was you know, helping them like you know. i may be injured right now, but the concern is really to take care of you. we don't know where the gunman is at. so i like to make sure people are safe first, don't worry about me. so that is my story. thank you for giving me a chance to tell a little bit what happened to me. thank you. >> a decent guy, in a moment you're going to hear another story, all the developments on the situation today. for that, kyung lah. >> reporter: this is a big strong guy, when i spoke to her grandmother, she said her grandson is in pain, that is going to be a long recovery process for him and the other victims. meanwhile, we are lear

: well, they are not giving us any kind of sense. i would guess it would be a day or two before we know just how bad it is. certainly, the initial flights are going to be going over in the next couple hours. we know some aid agencies have started their long journeys down to the area from manila furtherer south in central philippines, which has been hit hard. the red cross for one, said they are going down with aid but believe it will take 18 hours to reach some of the hardest hit areas. they do have people on the ground. they planned ahead. this is not the first typhoon this country has seen, that's for sure and they say they have some aid with them. but of course, they have no communications with the people on the ground. so it's difficult to coordinate and extremely difficult to know how bad it is. >> the country is used to typhoons but never seen anything this strong, correct? >> reporter: no, absolutely not, and it seems as though the whole world has never seen anything this strong. this is above and beyond anything the philippines would certainly be used to. the hope is that people
